Geocache Description:

Kuhankuonon rajakivi Kurjenrahkan kansallispuistossa.
Boundary mark of Kuhankuono in Kurjenrahka national park.


Kuhankuonolla sijaitsee historiallisesti merkittävä seitsemän kunnan yhteinen rajakivi, entisaikojen vilkas kauppapaikka. Joidenkin lähteiden mukaan rajakivi on yhteinen kahdeksalle kunnalle; tällöin on otettu huomioon Maskun enklaavialue (=kunnasta irrallaan oleva alue toisen kunnan sisällä). Varsinaiset naapurukset ovat Turku, Vahto, Nousiainen, Mynämäki, Yläne, Pöytyä ja Aura.

Alueella on retkeilyreitistö ja rajakiven lähellä tulentekopaikka. Lähin pysäköintialue on vain n. 300 metrin päässä kätköstä (N 60° 44.393 E 022° 24.957).

Kätkö on muovirasia, joka sijaitsee sen kunnan sektorilla, jonka eteläkärki on rajakiven kohdalla. Salakielisen vihjeen avulla etsittynä vaikeusaste on noin 1.5. Talvella lumi voi vaikeuttaa kätkön löytämistä.

Kätkön alkuperäinen sisältö on:
- Japanilaistyylinen viuhka
- Formula -älypalapeli
- Pieni lelunalle
- Lyijykynä ja lokikirja



Kuhankuono is a historical boundary mark of seven communes and in former times it was a market place. According to some sources, the boundary mark is common to eight communes; in that case the enclave area (=a separated area of a commune, inside another commune) of Masku is included. The actual neighbours are Turku, Vahto, Nousiainen, Mynämäki, Yläne, Pöytyä and Aura.

There is hiking route within the area and a fireplace near the boundary mark. The nearest parking place is located only about 300 meters from the cache (N 60° 44.393 E 022° 24.957).

Cache container is a plastic box, located in sector of that commune, whose south end is at the boundary mark. Using the additional hint reduces the difficulty level to 1.5. Snow may make it more difficult to find the cache in winter.

The original contents of the cache:
- Japanese-type fan
- Formula IQ Puzzle
- Little toy bear
- Pencil and logbook
